Smiles for the Family by Orthodontists You Can Trust
BRACES STARTING AT $99/ MONTH
THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ORTHODONTISTS RECOMMENDS
CHILDREN HAVE THEIR FIRST CHECK-UP WITH AN ORTHODONTIST NO LATER THAN AGE 7.
CHOOSING THE BEST TIME FOR YOUR CHILD'S
To have a smile that's long-lasting and healthy, your child needs teeth and jaws that are properly aligned - in other words, a healthy bite. While the age that kids get braces may vary, orthodontics for children most often begins between the ages of 8 and 14. Some orthodontic problems are easier to correct if they are treated early.
If Dr. Courtney Dunn or Dr. Matthew Dunn thinks your child will need treatment, they will let you know when it will be best to enjoy treatment. This gives your orthodontist the best chance to:
Guide jaw growth
Lower the risk of trauma to protruded front teeth
Correct harmful oral habits
Improve appearance and self-esteem in your child
Guide permanent teeth into a more favorable position
Create a more pleasing arrangement of teeth, lips and face
It's not always easy to tell when your child may need braces or has an orthodontic problem. Even teeth that look straight may be hiding a problem bite. Here are some clues that may indicate the need for orthodontic attention:
SIGNS THE BITE'S NOT RIGHT
Early or late loss of baby teeth
Difficulty chewing or biting
Breathing through the mouth
Crowded, misplaced or blocked-out teeth
Upper and lower teeth that don't meet, or meet in an abnormal way
Jaws that are too far forward or back
Biting the cheek or biting into the roof of the mouth
An unbalanced facial appearance
Grinding or clenching of the teeth
